The Crucial m4 128GB
For some reason Crucial changed the location of their information stickers. On what would normally be the label side, Crucial put the product information sticker that shows the serial number, model number and capacity size. Also included on this label is the firmware revision of your drive at the time it shipped.
The graphic label side is now on the bottom. Also on the bottom is the four mounting points and they are placed where they should be. The same aluminum case used on the C300 was carried over to the m4 and it also meets the size requirements used by nearly all notebook manufacturers. As you may know, the current OCZ SSDs are shipping with a case that doesn't fit some notebooks. You can read more about that issue here.
The side mounting points are also where they should be, so you will not have an issue installing the Crucial m4 in your notebook or desktop with an adapter bracket.
Connecting your new m4 128GB is as easy as connecting the SATA power and data cables.
Inside we found the Marvell 88SS9174-BKK2 controller and sixteen Micron 25nm flash chips. The layout reminds us of the C300.
The remaining 25nm flash is on the bottom of the PCB and this is also where you'll find the 128MB Micron cache buffer.
